Connect a Huawei B818-263 to a Poynting 4G-XPOL-A0001?

I've just upgraded my MR200 to the B818 and straight out of the box, my speeds are great! But I can't connect it to my external Poynting 4G-XPOL-A0001.

I can see you can buy connectors from Amazon and the like but I wanted to make sure which were the best before I bought anything else!

Thank you.

I think these are what you need if your router has TS9 connections and your external antenna uses SMA connections.

I've received the connectors and set them up and the signal is worse! Obviously nothing is straightforward. Does anyone have any ideas what I could do next?

Just to add, the position of the antenna gave me a speed of about 60mbps from my old TP Link MR200.

I'm not surprised. I didn't get any improvement from my B818 when using an omndirectional Poynting antenna. But what it did do was give me better flexibility for siting options and it was worth it for that. If you can put the router in the best spot then there's little point in getting a separate antenna.

The only negative so far is that the signal isn't always stable and the speeds are inconsistent but I haven't had the chance to really experiment with it yet.

Bottom line is that I wish I'd bought this router many years ago, as it would have saved me many hours of headache.

It's just typical that my town is now currently receiving a FTTP upgrade and will probably have no need to the 4g internet soon but still, better late than never I suppose.
